I am relaxed hair transitioning w/out the big chop. I washed my hair last weekend and did bantu knots and wore my hair curly...now it's coming to the end of the hairstyle and I was wondering if I should wash my hair or what I need to do? I plan on doing some curls on flex rods?

How often should I wash my hair?
How can I speed of the transition process or can I?
How do I seal in moisture?

I know I'm asking a lot of questions, but I'm so new to this and wants to make sure I don't do something that would make me hate this choice!
